    About me, been lifting consistently for around 3.5 years focusing mainly on strength, heavy weight low reps. In saying that to get the benefits out f this stack I will be switching to a more hypertrophy type routine. My lifting days can be a bit sporadic due to working a rotational roster, days/nights/days off type setup.

    Current Maxes
    Squat 405 currently around 385
    Deadlift 515 current
    Bench 315 currently 275

    During my last run when I set these maxes I got heat exhaustion during my pct and lost just over 13lbs, hopefully during this run I can get closer to where i was.
    Diet will also be a bit over the place as on my rostered off days for the next few weeks ill be travelling interstate and will be at the mercy of what the company will be providing, I will however be aiming for 3k cals, I can make up the difference in powders and other go to quick foods, like natty pb, quick cups of rice etc etc if If I need to get my cals up.

    Now lets get swole!

    Day 1

    Dosed 4 max pump pre workout
    Dosed 2 creatona pre workout and another 2 later on in the evening
    No stimul8 today as I had to try get some sleep for night shift.

    Changed it up today and I'm suffering with some severe doms already. Not used to doing so much volume. Anyways it went like this

    Wide grip chins
    Bw x 17 x 13 x 10 x 10 x 10

    Bent over rows
    220 x 10 x 9 x 8 dropset on the last 175 x 7 drop again to 135 x 13

    Single arm rows
    110 x 10
    125 x 8 x 8

    Delt destroyers
    Swings 35lb x 12 x 12 x 12
    Full reps 15lb x 10 x 10 x 10 hate these lol they burn like ****! Very humbling doing the heavy partials first then trying to do full reps.

    Hammer strength ground station shrugs
    265 x 30
    345 x 20
    405 x 12
    450 x 7 x 6 x 6 PR!

    Straight bar curls 4020 tempo
    75 x 12 x 10 x 10

    Cable rope curls
    90 x 15 x 12 x 11
    Superset
    Cable straight bar curls
    80 x 8 x 8 x 8

    Was pretty beat after this, I had to help the wife today as well so the intensity is down from where it usually is. All good tho I enjoyed having her lift with me.
    Kept diet tight 2948 cals.
    Can not wait to try stimul8 tomorrow afternoon, I usually need a good kick in the pants stim to get out of bed and train before night shift, hopefully it lives up to the hype, I'm sure it will

    Way to go on the PR! Nice work altogether. I always forget about the ground-shrug thingy.

    You're going to love the Stimul8, and good call not taking it before bed.

    Day 2

    Dosed 4 creatona pre workout and another 2 about 7 hours later
    Dosed 4 max pump pre work out
    1/2 scoop stimul8

    So I took my first dose of stimul8 today, talk about thermogenics! I was absolutely drenched by the end f my first couple exercises! The gym is AC as well! I didn't notice a huge stim effect from it but I think that's due to having a decent meal before taking it, I get a bit pressed for time between night shifts, only have 1.5 hours once I wake up to eat, gym and start getting ready 4 work. Ill take it on my next wo day an hour or so after I eat.
    My workout today went a bit like this

    Barbell bench press
    135 x 20
    220 x 12
    245 x 10
    265 x 8
    220 x 8

    Incline db press
    90s x 8 x 6 x 6

    Db shoulder press
    80s x 8 x 8 x 8

    Hammer strength side lateral raise machine
    22.5per side x 10 x 10 x 10
    Superset
    Db side lateral raise
    15 x 10 x 10 x 10

    Cable high flyes
    30 per side x 10 x 10 x 10

    Overhead rope extensions
    55 x 13 x 12 x 10
    Superset
    Vbar pressdowns
    75 x 8 x 8 x 8

    Tuff stuff dips machine
    Whole stack x 5 did a descending set here, rep out to failure drop weight rep out till failure again and so on so forth until your struggling to push out girl weights.

    The stim effect from stimul8 hit when I was almost finished and lasted a good few hours. Was dripping wet when I walked out.
    Diet was on point everything mirrored yesterday's.

    Day 4

    4 creatona pre wo
    4 max pump pre wo
    1/2 scoop stimul8

    Spaced out my stimul8 a about 1.5 hours past eating breakfast and it definitely helped a lot. Had a very nice clean energy and an epic thermo effect, I was actually sweating in the car ac on the way to the gym. Mac effort legs didn't go as well as I planned due to having some workmates come along and they're very new to lifting so I had to spend a lot of time showing them form etc etc.

    Legs

    Squats
    Bar x 20
    135 x 15 x 15
    175 x 12 x 12 x 12 this was my workmates weight so I just stuck with it until he was done
    265 x 5
    315 x 5
    345 x 5
    365 x 5
    385 x 0 x 0 epic fail here I don't know wtf happened lol

    Leg press
    10 plates per side x 12
    10 plates + 22.5lb per side x 8
    11 plates per side x 7
    12 plates per side x 4

    Walking db lunges
    45s x 12 x 12 x 9
    Superset
    Cable hack squats
    265 x 29 x 21 x 16

    Stiff legged deadlifts
    225 x 10
    265 x 8 x 8 x 8

    Leg press calve raise
    265 x 19 x 17 x 13 x 12
    Superset
    Shít squats
    Bw x 25 x 25 x 25

    Seated calve raises
    90 3 x failure

    Was pretty beat after this and my workmate spewed. I was drenched in sweat I was actually dripping as I walked out. Pretty disappointed in my squat today 385 didn't feel overly heavy but my quads were screaming from the pump I had from all the lighter sets. I think I can thank max pump for that lol.
    Today's diet was a bit of a fail, being away from home and having meetings etc totally screwed with me today I'm going to have to get my shít together and pre prepare some food, there's a fit and fast food store down the road from my hotel I think I may have to pay them a visit as the hotel room doesn't have a kitchen.

    Day 5

    4 creatona pre wo
    4 max pump pre wo
    1/2 scoop stimul8

    Ok so I hit arms today, I didn't have my log book and I can remember what I did to be honest but the highlights were close grip bench 175 x 6 and hammer grip bw chins for 22 which is a pr if I'm not mistaken.
    The pump today was incredible, actually painful! I love it. Is it usual to feel the max pump this early @Montego?
    Stimul8 did the trick today again, I'm loving this a lot, the thermo effect is noticeable 10 mins after taking it and there's no crash from the stim effects.
    Diet was better today but still not ideal in saying that tho I have got it sorted now and won't have any more issues. The fit food shop is going to accommodate what I need to take in and make meals up specifically for me. Winning

    When I put MP into my rotation I normally "feel it" around day three and day five is where it peaks and stays on that same level throughout the duration of me cycling it. It's a great product, not only for pumps, but for its ability to buffer lactic acid buildup. Any noted vascularity increases yet?

    I'm not a very vascular person in general and I haven't noticed an increase as of yet, I am however nowhere near as sore doms wise as I usually am. I am liking it thus far and am thinking of buying another few bottles of all three....

    Day 7

    4 creatona pre wo
    4 max pump pre wo
    3/4 scoop stimul8

    Bumped up the stimul8 to 3/4 scoop, as per usual I sweated my ass off prior to even getting to the gym. Hit up a bit of chest today

    Chest

    Flat bench
    135 x 15
    175 x 12
    225 x 10
    265 x 6
    245 x 8
    225 x 10

    Incline db press
    90s x 8 x 8 x 8 felt a loud crack in my elbow here on my last set and it started to ache

    Decline bench
    135 x 15 x 15 x 15

    High cable flyes
    30 per side x 12 x 10 x 10

    Low cable flyes
    20 per side x 12 x 10 x 9

    Weighted chins
    Bw + 45 x 11
    Bw + 65 x 7
    Bw + 55 x 8

    Rack pulls
    225 x 8
    315 x 8
    405 x 5
    495 x 2

    I trained fasted this morning and this amplified the effects of stimul8 hugely, I mixed it in with some extend pre wo and was good to go. Had an awesome clean energy and honestly felt like I lost 5lb from sweat lol. 3/4 scoop is definitely getting close to my sweet spot.

    Nice work Luke! That's a lot of volume for fasted training.

    Speaking of fasted training with Stimul8....so everyone knows it is on fact suited perfectly for this. The IRISINXD is the key here to preserving muscle while burning up those fat stores.

    I'm gonna have to give this a try. I prefer working out fasted, but was told by a billion bro-scientists that I must at least have a protein shake pre.

    Bcaa's at least as per my bro science PhD

    I don't like fasted training at all. But for those who do I suggest BCAA+SAA.

    The intention of fasted training is of course to burn fat. The small amount of calories you need to burn to eliminate the BCAA's is much less a concern IMO then possibly burning some muscle as fuel.

    Call it bro science if you wish, but I call it better safe then sorry

    definitely a fan of BCAA+SAA pre and intraWO if training in fasted state

    the concept of fasted training is a debatable one, you will get many different opinions on this
    I liken the generic idea of fasted training to the similar generic concept of IF eating pattern: for fat-loss, if you are not a bb'er and just a fat-ass trying to lose weight or control eating patterns, well then okay..if your goals are different than just average joe-schmoe and you want to actually build muscle and shape your body differently, then no sorry do not go that route, both ideas are seriously flawed and detrimental to such

    while IF will never be suitable for bb'ers (seriously - can you picture Arnold or Ronnie coleman practicing IF?), fasted training can certainly be suitable if enough care is given to proper fuel via BCAA ingestion (mainly to protect precious muscle stores), and also care is given to follow this format with proper nutrition afterwards
    it is not a protocol I would necessarily advise for the long-term, but surely this can be utilized in isolated periods for brief durations, to accomplish increased fat-loss

    I used to train fasted every morning. Not because I wished to, but because of the time I would train. Now I have a MM shake about an hour prior because I don't like the feeling of starving.

    Yeah it's more than I planned to do bit I had my nephew there and he's never seen anyone do weighted chins before so I had to show off lol
    Now that I know that it has this effect I might train fasted a bit more often lol.

    We must've got our PhDs in bro science from the same place monte!
    I don't usually train fasted often unless I'm dieting down as it can effect my performance in the gym!

    In a nutshell I agree with you snags, even when dieting down I only utilise fasted training for selective periods of time. I haven't tried iF style as with my work roster it plays havoc. Since I'm going on holidays next week I've been thinking about trailing it for a month..... I know your thoughts on IF tho lol.

    I always train in the early am nowadays so I know how it feels to try and eat then train at stoopid o clock.
